After making several hints this election season as to her desire to land a role in the upcoming Short Circuit reboot, it is now being rumored that Hillary Clinton will play the title role in the new franchise.
The original Short Circuit movies followed the adventures of a military drone named ‘Number 5’ who achieved consciousness after being hit by a lightning bolt. Number 5, now alive, escaped his military compound and befriended St Elmo’s Fire star Ally Sheedy and Steve Gutenberg of the Gutenberg press Gutenbergs.
The reboot is rumored to star Hillary Clinton as a slightly more human Number 5 who is troubled by regular ‘short circuits‘ symptomatic of a serious disorder. Number 5, however, seeks to hide these ‘short circuit’ problems from those around her. With hilarious results.
The new movies aim to be ‘Politcal-military farce with robots’.
“A funny version of West World,” according to one anonymous source, “the films will revolve around the Number 5 robot have bizarre, increasingly disturbing, short-circuit-seizure things and then trying to explain them away as harmless, nothing-to-worry-about jokes.”
“Number 5’s ambitions for power and prestige will constantly be undermined by Number 5’s own weird behaviour and attempts to cover it up with outlandish lies.”
Hillary is rumoured to have signed onto a three movie deal with the possibility of featuring in further ‘Short Circuit Cinematic Universe’ movies.
